Mighty Ocean

Mighty Ocean

Mighty ocean 
commanding respect
of all those who enter
It will take you
carry you, devour you,
even be your mentor
 
Stand at its shore
void of emotion
and vacant intellection
Feel its strength
impossible to fight
inevitable insurrection
 
Let its sound
envelop and infuse
the spirit with energy
Live in awe of
its strength while it
takes your lethargy

    Great poem, Christine–and we’re on the same pixabay page! I saw this same photo and was enamored of it…I’m thinking of opening another blog… 🙂

        Probably the same kind…I’m a rather “habitual poet, quote person” 🙂
